A Japanese man has died on a flight after ingesting 246 bags of cocaine.
The flight bound for Japan’s Narita International Airport from Mexico had to make an emergency landing after the man started having seizures.
Authorities say the man, identified as Udo N, had come to Mexico City from Bogota, Colombia.
He died of a cerebral edema caused by a drug overdose.
During the autopsy, the bags – measuring 2.5 centimeters long and 1-centimeter wide – were found in his stomach and intestines.
Transporting narcotics inside human “mules” is a popular smuggling tactic with drug cartels.
